Did you know June 21 – June 27 is National Pollinator Week? National Pollinator Week is an annual event celebrated internationally in support of pollinator health. The Detroit refinery celebrated on June 23 by participating in the Pollinator Pledge Event hosted at the Fort River Bridge. Partnering with Motorcities National Heritage Area, Bees in the D, FRoG, and other organizations, the event was a great success, bringing the community together to learn about the importance of pollinators and participating in the planting of pollinator flowers! A member of the Marathon family, Janine Bertucci, delivered a fantastic speech at the event that highlighted our Wildlife Habitat Area gold conservation certification, as well as our North American Butterfly Association-certified sustainability garden in Oakwood Heights! She also hosted a table at the event, giving away free pollinator plants and seeds to those that attended the event.
